5.0 out of 5 stars Finally an electric men's body shaver that works!, May 18, 2006
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Philips Norelco BG2020 BodyGroom (Health and Beauty)
Until the Bodygroom arrived, the only choices for men (or for that matter women) who wanted to shave more than legs or underarms, were expensive, poorly-performing electric "body shavers" that cost $50 and up.

I wasn't positive that Norelco's entry into this area would be any better. Their regular razors always irritated my face (I use a Braun for my face), so I wasn't sure a body entry wouldn't irritate my sensitive skin. Since they have a 90-day money-back gaurantee, I decided to give it a try.

I am happy to report that the shaver doesn't irritate my skin at all, does a great job on both long and short hair, and works exactly as advertised. I am particularly fond of the plastic trimmer attachements which let me tame some long hair without removing it all. Cleanup is a quick rinse under the faucet.

While this shaver does work in the shower, I discovered that wet skin has a lot more friction than dry skin. The shaver was a lot easier to use on dry skin. All in all, this product does everything it claims to do. The value is very good, and the quality is excellent. By the way, Norelco has a cute web site advertising this product (that's how I found it. The Wall Street Journal wrote the web site up), [...].
